Legendary Designer Todd Oldham And Target Unveil Newly Renovated Library At P.S. 21 In Staten Island

Stocks in this article: TGT

Today, Target Corp. (NYSE:TGT) and The Heart of America Foundation unveiled a state-of-the-art library and Target Meals for Minds food pantry at P.S. 21 in Staten Island, New York. As part of the 2012 Target School Library Makeover program, which includes plans to give more than $12 million to support education, the retailer is unveiling new libraries at a total of 32 in-need elementary schools across the country. In addition, Target will award $15,000 reading grants to five New York City schools that previously received library makeovers.

Kid Made Modern creator and designer, Todd Oldham helped to redesign the space by incorporating his signature style throughout the library. During the library unveiling, he was on hand to help celebrate the new space with students, teachers and community members, and hosted an art activity with the students at P.S. 21.

“Reading has been a true passion of mine from a very young age, and the library was always a special place for me to go,” said Todd Oldham, creator and designer of Kid Made Modern, kid art supplies and kits with a modern twist. “I am happy to have teamed up with Target to create a space that cultivates imagination and nurtures a love of reading. With this new library, I want kids to learn something in a space they can enjoy.”

The new library at P.S. 21 is one of two schools in the New York City-area receiving a renovated library. The other school is P.S. 360 in the Bronx. Each library will feature 2,000 new books, furniture, carpet and shelves, and a complete technology upgrade, including new iPads. The program also provides seven new books for each student to take home following the unveiling celebration.

“The new library and food pantry are amazing gifts for our school and our students,” said Gina Moreno, principal, P.S. 21. “Thanks to Target and The Heart of America Foundation, our students have the resources they need to feel inspired and ready to learn when they walk through our school doors.”
